Wedding Accessories Checklist
You’ve got the perfect dress for your wedding! Now it is time to turn your attention to the other parts of your wedding day look.
Instead of bridal white shoes, consider buying a pair in one of your wedding colors or a metallic so that you can wear them again after the wedding. And don’t underestimate the importance of a comfortable pair since you will be doing a lot of standing and dancing! I love these peep toes from Aruna Seth.
Whether you wear earrings, a necklace, bracelets, hair pins and clips or nothing at all depends on your dress and your personal style. There are some great bridal jewelry lines, like Tejani who makes the earrings below, but department stores have some great options too.
A vintage or embroidered handkerchief, like these ones from WeddingBee, is nicer for those emotional moments than a Kleenex and will make a nice memento.
The right bra, underwear, slip or shaper can make all the difference in how your dress looks. Try on a few different options for each one and opt for a nude color (vs. white) so that they don’t show through in the pictures. These Spanx are awesome if you have a mermaid dress and want everything to look sleek and smooth.
Not for everyone, but the garter is a chance to incorporate your “something blue” or have a little fun with it! These ones from Florrie Mitton Couture have an heirloom quality and are works of art!
Have one of your bridesmaids bring your clutch to the reception and ceremony so that you can stash makeup and hairpins for any touch-ups. How pretty are the feathers on this one?
Wrap or Shrug
Even if you get married in the summer or have an indoor reception, it can get chilly at night so a pashmina, shrug or even a fur stole could come in handy! I also like the look of a cardigan to dress things down at the end of the night.
Long or short, these could be a part of your overall look or just out of necessity if you have a winter wedding. Below is some glove inspiration from Carrie’s Sex and the City wedding.
